Purchase Protel99SE

I'm afraid I wasn't explicitly enough. I want to buy it legally, with invoice and valid license, but I don't know if that is possible, since Altium discontinued it for sure.

Re: Purchase Protel99SE

You're very unlikely to get a copy. There was (still is) a Yahoo group dedicated to buying/selling legitimate copies but there has been very little activity in the last couple of years.

I've been trying to buy a seat for the last six months with no success. Altium will give you a copy - but only if you purchase an Altium designer seat.

Re: Purchase Protel99SE

Your problem is that, in order for it to be a legal copy of Protel99SE, it must not have been used to upgrade to DXP or Altium Designer. Once a user upgrades, the old license is considered transferred to the newer version, and the older software is no longer legally licensed.

Your best bet would be to advertise on the only active Protel forum still in use. Sign up here: https://techservinc.com/mailman/listinfo/peda_techservinc.com , and then post your request. There are still active members who may have, or know of, a legal copy of the older software.
